Can you help a Technophobe?

We’ve previously talked about how to explain this web stuff to beginners and online help for people who know less about the web than you.

Now the BBC has taken up the challenge by launching a project called ‘First Click Friends‘.

The aim is to help an estimated 9 million people in the UK who have never even used the Internet.

Can you rescue a Newbie?

 

The BBC wants us more tech-savvy people to become the ‘first click friends’ of these people, rescuing friends or family members from the web-ignorance.

The idea is to guide their first few steps on the web, giving users the knowledge and skill to navigate themselves deeper into the web.

There are downloadable starter manuals, further resources and information about the project all on the new BBC ‘First click friends’ website.
